PENDER COUNTY, N.C. -- Drought conditions along the coast are stunting the growth of some major crops.
- Stunted growth due to heat and little rain
- Some corn stalks are about two feet shorter

A county extension agent said corn stalks are about two feet shorter than they usually are around this time.
Some local farmers say so much heat and so little rain has caused them to lose about half of their corn crop.
